buildings where it reduces the amount of energy use which reduce our loss. so, we're looking at balancing that versus go solar which you give rebates to private citizens. so, these are all the things that we're considering we need to talk with all stakeholders. >> what is the deadline to sunset on solar deductions? >> on the go solar sf program, it's currently concludes in 2018. >> i know you said 2018 for this program. i was referring to the state program in terms of -- >> there isn't a deadline for the california solar incentive. >> i thought -- so it's still in existence? >> it's still in existence. the dollar amount available ratchets down over time, but i don't believe it's projected to go to zero. >> okay. but pretty close? >> yeah. >> all right. commissioner vietor? >> i would be interested, since we are in the thick of the clean power sf conversations, to hear more specifically how this go solar program could be tied to go solar customers -- i mean, to clean power sf customers. and also some thoughts around kind of the marketing and framing and if that could be something that woul
that a light green program means you're not getting your whole energy or all of your energy from recs or any kind of renewable energy. the light green program in marin is 50% regular energy from wherever they're getting it from and 50% renewable energy credit. so, that is what a light green program is. all the different options we're looking at are all 100%. pg&e needs are going to be 100%. our parav -- program is going to be 100% * whether it's [speaker not understood]. i can look at our solar panel over there and say my money went to that. it doesn't matter to -- the general public doesn't know the difference between bucket 3 recs which are the ones that are unbundled and bucket 1 recs which are ones you can say my money went to that solar panel right therethv they just know they're purchasing 100% renewable energy from the city. the only thing that brings our program apart from pg&e's program is this discussion of local benefits to san francisco. where are the jobs? and right now the plan as we're looking at it doesn't have that language in there. it doesn't have that message so people
renewable energy credits, the price of those is dramatically different depending upon which one you choose. and, so, just to give you a rate comparison, if you buy bundled recs, that actually ties the renewable energy to a physical place where we can point to that power plant, that solar panel, that wind farm. that has in the marketplace -- that costs about 5 cents a kilowatt hour. if we buy a tradable rec, we can typically get those for less than a quarter of a penny per kilowatt hour. so, depending upon which green attribute we want to green up our portfolio, be it a light green portfolio versus a dark green portfolio, or whatever shade of green in between, it's either very expensive or less expensive depending upon which ones we do. so, what we've done is we've dusted off the lighter shade of green and then also our premium green product and showed you the mix there. and the key financial considerations are that the renewable product mix is what drives the difference in premium. and our deep green product is about $10 more a month versus a lighter green product would be about $6 a month
to roughly double the cost of the rate on energy to the customer, so it's vital that we get the lafco to send a strong message to the sfpuc hey that's not good enough. we need the local distribution and the local jobs. we need to get back to the other model and make it work. thanks. >> thank you. any other member of the public would like to comment please come forward. >> david mc cord. i am the chair of the energy committee and san francisco has a great opportunity here now to develop really first class community choice aggregation system and right now there are two models presented. one by puc staff. they have been working diligently on that and also they -- the plan, the model being presented, developed and explained by the commission's consultant of local power. we think that local power is much better. it has the robust build out behind the meter, and lower premiums, price premiums especially in the first year. that will help people to stay opted in and not opt out, and as mr. brooks said lots of jobs for san francisco residents, so i would like the commission to send a strong
energy to the public. espinola jackson has always been around. i'm bumping into her constantly. i wish she was here to hear it. her contribution to the city process is profound -- has been profound. and so i not only would want to lionize dr. jackson, but just to say that even though dr. jackson has helped solve many problems like getting rid of the last power plant and stopping a new one from coming in and without her we probably would have never accomplished those goals. but there are still -- and then there's the digester issue. there are still a lot of other issues like the digester issue that are not solved yet. so, i would just strongly urge the commission and the staff to continue to pay attention to dr. jackson and listen to her wise advice, because she knows what she's talking about and she has helped this city process and the sfpuc process i am immeasurably in the last years. >> move to the consent calendar. any member wishing to remove an item, a, b or c? all right. i'll entertain a motion to approve and then we'll get to public comments if there are any. >> i'll move the it
in the republican side is if you buy into green energy or if you play footsie on this issue, you do so at your political peril. >> you do, absolutely. and that's a big change, and it is important. again, i remember four, five or even three years ago, john, a lot of republicans, they would play games with this. they'd say, "okay, oh gosh, i think i need a green energy agenda. but i won't go all the way and support cap-and-trade." they did. they tried to walk down the middle and that's wrong. i think it's philosophically inconsistent, but it's also politically disadvantageous. and we've worked hard to make that so, by the way. the left has had the edge as long as i can remember. they march out to the towns, do whatever they are told to do... one thing we've changed with afp, is we now have an army too. and we can do calls and e-mails and letters and rallies, events, and pressure. and i think that's made a big difference. our side didn't have that five six years ago on this issue. we do now. i do think it's a new day for that reason.

,000 miles per hour. as it comes into the atmosphere, it has to dissipate that energy somehow and the dissipation goes into heating the air around it as it plunges in. but it also goes into breaking up the meteor, so it breaks up into smaller pieces. that helps to dissipate the energy. the reason why it was spread over such a large area is because the measurement on the contrail behind it is about 300 miles long. this is essentially skipping into the atmosphere so it's going to create a shock wave, like a sonic boom, that rolls along the surface of the planet for quite some distance, that would create the damage over such a wide area. >> mason: there was another close encounter today as an asteroid passed within 17,200 miles of earth, well inside the orbit of some of our satellites. are these events related or is this a cosmic coincidence? >> well, you know, there are all sorts of events going on in the solar system. it just so happens in coincidence that these two events happened today. we had the one that we already knew about for quite some time and this one that just sort
